Ravages of the Fridges Unknown!
    #4296209 - 06/14/05 08:33 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hello everyone!! This is my first post concering my first attempt at my first grow. I'm in Canada and Bill C-7 scares the hell outta me, making spore acquistion a tricky venture these days. I managed to acquire a jar with what looks like an active fungus on the inside in the early stages, ie, scattered sections of white fuzz/no contaminations so far. Unfortunately, this jar has been sitting in some guy's fridge for I don't know how long, so I was wondering if you fine ladies and gentlemen could offer me some advice.

Is there a preferred method of gently easing the culture back into normal temperatures? Poor little guys have been through enough, I'd hate to blunder this early on in the process.

My thanks!!

maybe take it out at night and leave it near a window so it can equilibrate to a cooler temperature before the heat of the day. I can picture condensation inside the jar being a problem, but no experience with fridge mycology.

we really need to know how long they have sat in the frig.

they can sit in the frig for a few months.

are these BRF/Verm pf type cakes in the jars...or some type of grain?

Thanks for the great responce! There's really no way of knowing how long the jar's been in the fridge, but the media is some sort of grain and you can see white fuzz gathering around some of the kernels. The kernels are sticking together in some places where the white fuzz is especially prominent and there's one or two fuzz clusters that have a good 7 or 8 kernels stuck together.

I'll try the window thing... after that, it should be okay in room temperature, right?

I hope to become a very skilled mycologist eventually and be able to contribute to these boards.

Bear with me, my friends!!

I believe the grain to be rye... a quick click on one of the banners took me to a site that had pretty much the exact same jar I now hold in my hands: http://www.spores101.com/canadian-products.html

With the sponge vent in the lid and everything. With a little luck, my little soul garden may be well under way
